Defining what success looks like for you

Success is defined individually. What does it mean for you? Is it more money, more time to spend with family, travel, complete creative projects?
Your personal source of motivation is what will keep you going when will power inevitably runs out.
Many entrepreneurs attach their self worth to their success, "When I achieve this milestone... I will be happy" This thinking will hold you back every time.
Your self worth is independent of your business. It is your self worth that  will propel you forward to accomplish milestones and achieve goals. This is your starting point.

Define what success looks like for you, why is this important?

Visualization techniques: Envision your future state paired with the emotion you feel once you have achieve it.

Embed individual motivators in to your overall goal setting plan

Defining your sales process

What repeatable steps are you taking to attract, engage and convert potential clients? Have you adjusted your process to reflect the virtual environment? Having a framework in place keeps you in check with your plan, but is is aligned with your buyers? Is there overlap in the way buyers buy and you sell? Are you meeting them where they are?

Developing your brand and selling style

What are people saying about you when you are not there? What are you known for professionally? who do you help? how do you help them? Where can people find you? What is your track record? You're messaging from your website to other platforms? Is your point of view is congruent with your brand?. does is reflect trust, capability and problem solving. This is what your clients are looking for- Does your brand reflect this?

74% of people struggle from glassophobia, fear of speaking in public.Sales professional  rated remote video selling  70% less effective than face to face. The reality is, being on video, seeing our face, hearing our voice is not going anywhere. The need to leverage technology and overcome our fear of presenting in person and online is critical. Allowing our voice and personality to shine through creates space to connect emotionally with your audience,  deliver a compelling message that promotes a path towards change.

Targeting your ideal customer

In business, pipeline is everything. A full pipeline allows you to walk away from clients that do not serve you as well as ride out the dry times. Ensuring you are targeting the right client is critical- who does your solution best suit, what industry, department, individual role does your produce/service address? The more specific and detail you have around the "job to be done", the greater resonance your message will have. What process are you adopting to target your ICP? Is it iterative, have you adjusted it to a virtual audience?

Improving your emotional intelligence to attract your ideal client

Have you heard "soft skills. produce hard results"? If you have been in sales for many years, you may  rely on the hard skills. Leading a team "your way", product focused, tough, stoic negotiations and much more.
Countless studies show that to disarm our audience, connect and engage with them it starts with building trust, empathy and detaching from the outcome. Saying it and doing it are too different things. How are you inviting more emotion to come through your engagements? Improving your level of self awareness? How do you perceive yourself vs how you are perceived by others?

What is the knowing and doing gap?

Start with OPP, Other person's perspective.Tap in to their thoughts

Be the reliable consultant, support your clients through change

Why are some entrepreneurs more successful than others? Why do others take more time to truly learn about their clients, increase their level of business acumen and make them think about their situation in a different light? Because they genuinely want to help, they care. This backfires if done inauthentically.  If you are not transactional,  can detach from the outcome, offer value that your client would pay for your are acting as their consultant. People need to feel you have their best interest, otherwise they sense you are only out for the commission. Assume the trusted advisor role, and help your clients for the right reasons.

In discovery are you  able to effectively uncover needs, ask insightful questions, practice active listening?

Do you have the skills to guide your client through the buyers journey? be problem centric vs product centric

What insights are you sharing, story telling to paint the "before" picture?

Are you the reliable partner the trusted advisor or the product pusher?

Messaging that sticks

It's no longer what you say but how you say it that carries weight, especially with the increase in online presence. How can you create and articulate a message that grabs your audiences's attention? stops them from scrolling, gets them to click here and lean in to learn more?
When our message is authentic, personalized and gives them the feeling we care, understand their unique challenges and are able to help,  increases your chances. However, most people are not in "buy mode: when you find them, selling your solution to someone who doesn't feel they have a problem is a one way conversation. How can we paint a picture in our buyers mind? Get them thinking  there may be a better way of doing things? In short, sell the problem. Get them to think differently, ask questions that highlight or expose areas of their business that are not sustainable. This is key to getting their attention and interrupts the pattern of everyone else who selling their solution focusing on themselves.

Creating your message- Balance personalization & Relevance

Are you putting in the time to truly understand your prospect environment? Are you speaking to similar clients to confirm challenges, gather insights and offer more value when engaging? This critical step takes time, when automated and done at scale the personalization and relevance are diluted and you sound the same as everyone else. Invest the time to step inside your clients world and not only understand their challenges, what problems are they trying to solve for their client.
